What Are We Looking For?
- Motivation and Self-Improvement for Success is our focus. We like articles that fit within the self improvement genre: Motivation, Money, Mindset, Fitness, Fearlessness, Confidence, Self-Belief, Self-discipline, Goal setting, Productivity, Success Secrets, and Motivational Quotes. In addition to this, we also like motivational/inspirational articles about overcoming adversity, taking action, reaching goals, and stories of people’s pursuit of personal achievement (i.e. success stories of well known people, and ordinary GO-getters alike) which will get archived in our Strive Stories section.
- We prefer high impact articles between 900 – 3000 words long, that include a 2 paragraph introduction, usually followed by good quality subheadings. To get an idea of what we’re looking for, and what we’ve already written, have a look at some of our existing posts on TheSTRIVE.co
- We like our articles to be informative, interesting, and upbeat. We want to help our readers feel motivated, and inspired to take action on their goals and dreams. As such, using long quotes and speeches for the bulk of your point or information is not something we are looking for.
- We DO NOT promote guest contributors websites, products, or services in the body of the article (unless it is a highly contextual link). Our focus is to provide our readers with practical advice, not for us to promote your products and services. Your bio at the bottom of your article will do that for you (one link max. allowed in bio, unless 2nd is to a social media profile).
- We DO NOT accept content that has already been published. Originality is key. Whether it has been published on your own personal blog, social media platforms, or with another publication, we will not consider it if it has already been published.
- We DO NOT accept sub-par content. We value contributors who value their work, and we value our readers. Potential contributors who spend minimal time creating an article, just to turn out quick post to gain a backlink, are easy to spot and rarely make it past our editorial team. Your article should be well thought out, well-structured, useful and include one or more of the following aspects:, informative, funny, emotional, or entertaining content. In short, it should be worth reading.
We DO accept sponsored articles. And yes, they do get moved to the forefront of our editorial review process; however, they DO get tagged and linked-to as sponsored when the article is published. For More Info Click Here.
